A great addition to the podcast world

I am glad to see Dietitians of Canada move into this space (podcasting). This podcast will surely serve to "educate" listeners on the diverse nature of careers in dietetics.I hope the series continues beyond the 2018 National conference.

This podcast allows listeners to get to know better speakers of the upcoming Dietitians of Canada National Conference. Its conversational, light hearted and excellently moderated by dietitian Cristina Cicco. I'm looking forward to attending sessions by both featured dietitians at the conference in Vancouver in June.
